Collected Stories and Recipes
'I'm a butter, pot, cook, eat kind of guy.'
Butter Boy is the complete collection of all 152 articles and over 450 recipes from Paul Flynn’s tenure as food writer for the Irish Times from November 2019 to October 2022. Paul's columns also chronicled what turned out to be the three most unusual and challenging years of our lives, when cooking and mealtimes took on new meaning.
Paul's food is simple, seasonal and family-oriented. It's designed to give comfort at any time of year because after a hard day, cooking dinner can be soothing and eating it can be comforting. Afterwards, the world feels just that little bit better.
Warm, witty and laugh-out-loud funny, reading and cooking from Butter Boy is like spending time in the kitchen with an old friend.
'This book is a celebration. I want to eat everything within its sunny pages.' – Marina O'Loughlin
'Butter Boy is set to become a classic.' – Georgina Campbell
'The style is reminiscent of Flynn the Tannery Cookery Teacher: confident, assuring, helpful, witty, and the book has something of the capacious Joy of Cooking/Boston Cooking School culinary bible in its 700-odd pages. With BB on the shelf, you really don't need anything else.' – John and Sally McKenna
